Spotlight on Bluegrass Refugee Voices!


Bluegrass Refugee Voices is a radio program hosted by Kentucky Refugee Ministries’ staff members Dana Lea and Karissa Porter. Dana has been with the organization for almost 3 years and Karissa for 12. KRM is a refugee resettlement agency located in both Louisville and Lexington. Here in Lexington we resettled over 350 individuals from the DRC, Bhutan, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Burundi, Cuba, and Burma. Bluegrass Refugee Voices is a radio program that embraces their welcoming spirit by highlighting the stories of Lexington’s refugees and celebrating the music and cultures that they originate from.
